Comment[edit]

Seems a pretty clear candidate for a wikipedia page to me, given that there are individuals pages for many many other emotions. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Thomascochrane (talkcontribs) 12:01, April 6, 2008

Awesome used for different purposes[edit]

"Awesome" is often used for nuanced purposes, and I've yet to see it explained somewhere. If you want to appear to be praising someone for their actions (theatre performance, parental advice to the youngsters, speech, America's Got Talent) the word is used. Gee, you were awesome gets to be used and overused to death, and hides the lie.

Romney's acceptance speech was awesome. So will be Obama's. The word covers your subtext, especially if your true response would be decidedly the opposite of approval. Yes, it's a useful word, and also a hypocritical word. But this cannot be put into the article (original research?)

So remember, smile a lot, hand over the flowers, and say "You Were Awesome!" JohnClarknew (talk) 18:37, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

Editing Awe entry[edit]

Hi there. I plan to make some major additions and minor edits to the Awe page. Here is a link to the sandbox where I'll be working on it, in case anyone wants to see it and make comments:
